I held off for as long as possible going digi as the analogue knobs are less likely to go wrong, but if you are going to be swappinb between materials I think the digi is going to add a lot to quality of life.
Did you go DC only or AC/DC?
I liked the look of digital because the analogue dials didn’t have clear increments from what I could see and I thought it would be a good idea to know exactly what settings I’m using while learning.
I would have liked AC/DC but I only really plan on making steel things for the foreseeable so I went DC to save money
Welding aluminium is a right PITA anyway.
ac isn't worth getting until you need it, good choice.
Was going to make a point about welding Ali, then I've never welded structural Ali.
Oh and don't lend your welder to anyone. Mine is still broken and needs a new board.
